There are three types of recruitment: planned, anticipated and unexpected. The worst case for sure is the unexpected leave. The sudden need for a new employee puts a lot of pressure on the entrepreneur or the department head. Reasons why employees leave are diverse and often beyond our control. No matter how good your employer branding is or your incentives within the company, sometimes employees just need a new challenge and take on new opportunities. A more tragic reason is a sudden health issue of the employee. Whatever the reason behind the unexpected quitting is, it puts you in the position of having to hire someone new fast. Ideally someone who can pick up where the other one left off without months of training.
Finding a suiting replacement in a short amount of time is the key problem for many entrepreneurs and managers. The most tempting solution is to hire anyone really fast and worry about the rest later. As attractive as this solution may feel compared to an unattained desk overloaded with work untouched - don’t go done that road. It is a waste of time and money. Take that time, put in that effort to find the best fit not just any replacement. How? First step is to write that job posting. The job description is a good basis to start. Usually, employees should leave on good terms, if so, let them work with you on their job opening. Include them in the screening process and the interviews, if they happen to still be around. If you happen to not have that support, you still need to do those steps. Optimizing the job posting, application screening, job interviews, test tasks. So the answer is: You won’t find a suiting replacement fast. Not on your own.
An alternative are so-called Recruitment as a Service companies (short RaaS). They are HR experts, usually with expertise in hiring in your specific industry. Talent sourcing is their daily business. Their „trained eye“ is capable of screening a stack of applications much more efficiently and with reliable results. On top of that they have the right network at hand. They might already have your future employee in their database, being able to find him or her much faster. Besides candidate screening, RaaS companies, also support with job interviews, test tasks and even the on-boarding process, if required. Although they do the work for you, you are still in charge of the process, able to take part in it as much and whenever you want, which gives you full flexibility. Still, you know your HR is in good hands which gives you the ease of mind to focus on your actual tasks. Another reason to outsource your HR process to an RaaS company is the scope of possibilities. The job market has changed a lot in recent years. Technology supports working from home, online meetings and co-working via cloud systems. So why not search for your next big talent worldwide? - Because putting job postings on every platform worldwide would take forever you might say. You don’t speak every job platforms language either. Yes and yes but you don’t have to. RaaS probably biggest advantage is their network. They have best talents for your specific industry at the tip of their fingers. Worldwide. Do you really want to restrict your talent sourcing to your region or do you prefer to hire the best people for the job, no matter where they are located?
Recruitment as a Service is on the rise. More and more companies offer support but which one should you choose? After all, you don’t want to waste your time on extensive research for the right HR expert either.
